I think it's a spectrum that I bounce around fairly often. Sometimes I prefer to sit in and play a night of video games or something, but I enjoy socializing quite a bit as well depending on my mood.

I consider myself anti-social but other people that know me say just the opposite. It's weird, little do they know I don't care what they have to say. :evil: j/k When at poker games and stuff I usually talk more than everyone but thats because they get all fucked up and have nothing smart or decent to say.

I'm kinda like the OP. I don't have a ton of friends or do a ton of "social things", but am very sociable when I actually do things.

However, while I'm never asocial, I do find being alone to be incredibly relaxing and I prefer living alone rather than with a roommate or anyone.
Alone time is sort of like, my escape, but I'm never shy in the least.
Maybe I'm just bipolar.

Nailed it. I love being with people and having fun, but it just wears me out for some reason. If I'm with other folks for extended periods (more than a day), I'll eventually get bored.

There are only maybe two people in the entire world, including myself, that I can stand to be around for more than a day without a prolonged break.

In the morning I am asocial because i'm groggy and slow. Throughout the day I'm okay, but I'm not one of those people who can pretend to care about someone else ina convo. I can't BS conversations really well because I have no drive to want to know more. With my friends, I like to hang out with them and go do things, but eventually I like to come home to my dogggg and watch tv/movie/play games by myself.
